The Conductor has no idea why the Preakness draw is not until 5:00pm today when Friday’s card was available Monday. That doesn’t make any sense, just like most things in horse racing. Whatever, I guess his Preakness day preview will have to wait until tomorrow. Until then, we might as well pick up a few bucks on our way to Baltimore. It is wind pipe whack Wednesday at Louisiana Downs after all, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1m70yds. Clm 5000b
#3 Dry Wood Creek (4/1) – 2nd off the layoff, he’ll get a good trip up close to the front in a race with absolutely no pace.
Race 2: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.Clm 5000b
*Never a Doubt Humpday Lock #1A Angel d’Oro (6/5) – She looks to be a step above this group.
Race 3: 1m70yds. Clm 5000n2L
#3 Vivinsky (10/1) – He showed ability in his debut, maybe he’ll find new life running for a new barn. This field is very weak, so he doesn’t have to wake up much to be a factor.
Race 4: 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 7500b
#6 Hawks Peak (3/1) – He’ll go right to the front and shouldn’t get much pressure. Gate to wire Louisiana Downs style.
Race 5: 7 Furlongs. S.F.Clm 5000n2L
*Gullet Shot of the Day Weavemeawinr (12/1) – She’s been facing tougher and is trending in the right direction.
Race 6: 5 Furlongs. F.S.Clm 5000n2L
#1 Lil Kylie (5/2) – She’s taking a significant class drop and has good early speed.
Race 7: 7 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) S.MC 12500
#9 Quisty Busty (8/1) – He has a chance to improve trying the lawn and stretching out for the first time. He’s bred to be better than these colts.
